Review: A Map of Days by Ransom Riggs
A Map of Days - Ransom Riggs

A Map of Days by Ransom Riggs is the fourth book in the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series. Jacob Portman is back in Florida trying to convince his parents that everything is fine.

This story picks up where the third installment left off. I absolutely love how the author uses old vintage photos to create his story. So brilliant, and fun to read, this series has become one of my all time favorite stories.

The Gods are Infantile and Infinitely Wise: "Ransom" by David Malouf
Ransom - David Malouf

(Original Review, 2010-01-15)



Someone else mentioned David Malouf's “Ransom” in a linked discussion. I highly recommend the book to others once they've been through “Homer.” What Mr. Malouf does with the relationship between Priam and Achilles manages - I think - to hold fast with the classic but simultaneously locate Homer's work in a contemporary context (2009 is barely yesterday in terms of the ages we're contemplating here). What Mr. Malouf does with Somax at the end is very clever, very satisfying to my modern inclination.

Review: Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs
Tales of the Peculiar - Ransom Riggs

Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs is a tale within a tale. Tales of the Peculiar is a book read by one of the characters to help find clues in the characters' journey.

I thought this was a great addition to the series. Tales of the Peculiar, read by one of the characters, Millard Nullings, is a book of old tales considered history of the peculiar recorded over years.

Review: Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs
Library of Souls - Ransom Riggs

Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs is the third installment of the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series. It picks up where the second book leaves off.

I can't say enough about this series. Fun, whimsical, strange, and yes, peculiar. A must read series.

Review: Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
Hollow City - Ransom Riggs

Hollow City by Ransom Riggs is the second book in the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series. This book picks up where the last book leaves off. 

I absolutely love this series. It's whimsical and fun. The characters are so unique. The author creates a fantastic world, and the use of old pictures only seals the deal and makes this story so believable.
